Split Villainy Discretion Shot into two: (a) when an evil act is not shown to keep a villain from becoming unsympathetic; (b) when the camera cuts away from a villainous scene to avoid frightening the audience or increasing the work's rating.

Redefine Villainy Discretion Shot to make it just about the "camera cuts away from a villainous act" cinematographic trope.

Rename Villainy Discretion Shot so it doesn't get confused for the camera cut. Purge examples that do not fit the current description.

  • Note: Large number of examples currently fitting the "off-camera villainous act" type.

Do nothing. Leave as-is.

  • Note: Trope has a healthy amount of wicks, few inbound links.
